cunardCunard Line has given North American PR duties to MGA Media, which was founded by Maria Grazia Andriano. Golin is the incumbent.

Andriano had the account when both of them were at Redpoint Marketing PR, where she launched the Queen Victoria.

She departed Redpoint in 2010 for Susan Magrino Agency, Andriano Communications and PRCo. International. MGA opened in February.

Cunard is preparing for its 175th anniversary in 2015.

MGA began work for Cunard this month with a 10th anniversary celebration for the Queen Mary 2 in Boston Harbor.

The New York-based firm is handling Cunard's media relations, brand awareness, events and partnership development.
